Bar Room Brawl

ugly red flowers
bloom on the floor of the bar
after the big brawl

Written by Captain Hops.

References: This haiku was inspired by (or stolen from) Al Purdy, a gritty Canadian poet that was brought to my attention by Alan over at A Good Beer Blog. As you may or may not know, Alan is having a beer poetry contest where the winner gets tickets to TAP New York, the Craft Beer and Fine Food festival. We’re talking hundreds of dollars of prizes here, so get off your duff and start versing.

Response to Optimism

She left real quickly
Lost at the bar, I ponder
Barkeep, suggestions?

References: This haiku came through email in response to Monday’s contribution – Optimism. I’ve been out of town so I couldn’t publish it until today.

Oops…

He didn’t mean it.
Bought a beer for the wrong gal
and started a brawl
